Sorry if this has been posted before but didn't come up on search, I've just been browsing amazon and found this on some of the electronics listings and thought id share to let people know:
Amazon's got you covered
To protect your device if it's lost or stolen and ensure that it will be returned to you if found by police, we will automatically take these actions for all devices dispatched from, and sold by Amazon, without sharing any of your personal information:
• Register its serial number on the National Mobile Property Register used by the UK Police forces, so the police can help you get it back.
• Register its serial number on CheckMEND, a database used by over 9,000 2nd hand traders, pawnbrokers and recyclers making it easy to locate in case it's ever resold.
